External Degree Program (EDP) Students
Admission to the External Degree Program requires the transfer of 60 semester hours of previous college credit with a grade of C or better. This credit may be earned in traditional college study, by completing standardized tests, or through assessment of prior experiential learning. All credit for experiential learning will be accepted for purposes of admission, but must undergo a separate evaluation for applicability to degree requirements. Students are admitted to begin in the fall, spring, and summer semesters.
Before applying, students are encouraged to speak with the advisor at their local Community College of Vermont (CCV) site to gain fuller understanding of the External Degree Program and how it may meet their individual needs. All EDP applicants must submit an EDP application for admission, found on the JSC website at www.jsc.edu/EDP, and the following materials:
- Official transcripts from all colleges/universities you have attended;
- If awarded credits for life experience, an official transcript from the Vermont State Colleges Office of External Programs;
- A $40 non-refundable application fee (waived for online applications or students who have at least 12 credits within the VSC);
- Resume (optional).
